Yields 4-8 servings
4 cups soybean oil (for deep frying)
1 unit egg (beaten)
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 lb. cod filets, uncooked, cut into 2×1-inch strips
6 tablespoons fire-roasted salsa
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
8 fresh corn tortillas, 6-inch size
1 cup kimchi
2 cups shredded red cabbage
1 cup grated carrots
½ cup frozen edamame (shelled), cooked according to package directions
1. Preheat soybean oil to 350°F in heavy frying pan or small deep fryer. Line baking sheet with paper towels.
2. Place egg in shallow dish. Place panko bread crumbs in a separate shallow dish. Dip fish pieces into egg and then roll in panko, pressing gently into each side of fish, to coat completely.
